MANILA (Mabuhay) – KIM Rodriguez and Kiko Estrada share their sweet poses together on social media, but they continue to deny that they are on.

“When we were doing ‘Strawberry Lane’, nililigawan ko na siya, pero hindi pa rin niya ako sinasagot hanggang ngayon,” says Kiko. “Hindi ko naman siya minamadali. Basta ipapakita ko sa kanya na handa akong maghintay. I’ll just be here for her hanggang maging ready na siyang tanggapin ang pagmamahal ko.”

“Hindi naman kasi kailangang magmadali,” says Kim. “Alam ko kasing hindi pa ako ready. Mahirap namang pumasok sa isang relasyon kung may hesitations ka. At saka, mas gusto ko talagang mag-focus muna kami sa trabaho. Kamukha rito sa ‘My Mother’s Secret’, very demanding ang role ko as Neri. Ayokong ma-distract ako. Naiintindihan naman niya yun kaya willing siyang maghintay. Three times a week ang taping namin for ‘My Mother’s Secret’, so madalas kaming magkikita. Basta ako, trabaho lang nang trabaho, pero masaya rin akong lagi kaming magkakasama dahil he’s a friend at masaya naman siyang kasama. Na-meet ko na rin ang mom niya (former actress Cheska Diaz) at masaya rin ang family nila. So okay na yung friends muna kami as of now.”

In “My Mother’s Secret”, the characters they play will meet while doing volunteer work for an orphanage. Kiko will eventually help Kim in her personal problems involving her oppressive aunt, Meryll Soriano, and her long lost mother who gave her away as a child, Gwen Zamora. (MNS)
